It is recommended that you have an emergency kit ready in case of severe weather. As part of Iowa Severe Weather Week, you are advised to have the following available:

  • Water and non-perishable food for each person for 3-5 days
  • First aid kit
  • Money
  • Battery-operated flashlight and radio, and extra batteries for each
  • Extra clothing and bedding (including shoes)
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Specialty items such as prescription medications, baby formula, diapers and pet supplies
  • Plates, cups, utensils and a can opener
  • Copies of important documents such as driver’s licenses, birth certificates, insurance policies and financial information
